Plans lodged for new bus and train hub

By Staff Reporter

A new Belfast transport hub has moved a step closer after Translink submitted a planning application.

The multi-million pound facility will be the main rail and coach link to Dublin with direct connections to major airports.

It is estimated the project could support up to 400 jobs during construction.

Translink Group chief executive Chris Conway said it would be a catalyst for the regeneration of the area around the Europa site.

"It will play a key role in positioning Belfast as a modern, confident and progressive city with a new energy to attract further multinational investors and boost the economic opportunities for the city and for Northern Ireland," he said.

People in Sandy Row have raised concerns about the impact on the historic Boyne Bridge, which could be impacted by the proposals for the £150m hub.

A decision is expected later this year.
